 Hi,
 
 Started  this  thread  to  inform  you  that  I  have  started  the  Micro  Worm  culture  again.
 
 Hobbyiest  who  require  it  can  msg  me  on  9945689401  for  the  starter  culture  and  can  pick  the  same  for  The  Aquarium  Store  on  Saturday.(Bangalore)
 
 If  you  are  think  that  it  is  going  to  cost  you,  then  you  are  right....  The  cost  involves  you  to  share  the  same  with  your  fellow  hobbyiest  who  are  in  need  of  it.  
 
 Mod's:  I  would  request  you  to  keep  this  thread  alive,  as  the  same  could  be  used  as  a  database  of  hobbyiest  who  have  live  worms.  Hobbyiest  who  want  to  share  the  culture  from  different  cities  are  most  welcome  to  use  this  thread.
 
 Regards,
 Surya.

 Prasoon  helped  me  a  lot  last  year  so  I  can  start  Live  food  culture.  But  failed  to  do  so  due  to  Gurgaon  weather  and  poor  shipping  system  of  India.  
 
 It's  a  great  initiative  Surya.   Thumb Up

 Cheers,
 Anwin

 Panagrellus  redivivus
 ------------------------
 The  free-living  nematode  Panagrellus  redivivus  (Sour  paste  nematode)  is  known  to  many  aquarium  enthusiasts  and  fishkeepers  as  the  microworm.  It  is  a  tiny  roundworm  used  as  the  first  food  for  minuscule  newly-hatched  fish,  such  as  the  popular  pet  fish  betta.  The  microworm  is  widely  used  in  aquaculture  as  food  for  a  variety  of  fish  and  crustacean  species.
 
 The  microworm  is  about  50  micrometers  in  diameter  and  just  over  1  millimeter  in  length,  barely  visible  to  the  naked  eye.  It  is  easily  cultured  at  home  on  a  substrate  of  flour  or  porridge.
 
 more  info
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panagrellus_redivivus
 
 
 Turbatrix  aceti
 -----------------
 Turbatrix  aceti  (Vinegar  eels,  Vinegar  nematode)  are  free-living  nematodes  that  feed  on  the  microbial  culture,  called  mother  of  vinegar  -  that  is  used  to  create  vinegar  -  and  may  continue  to  persist  in  unfiltered  vinegar.
 
 Although  they  are  harmless  and  non-parasitic,  leaving  eels  in  vinegar  is  considered  objectionable  and  is  not  permitted  in  vinegar  bottled  for  consumers  in  the  United  States[1].  Manufacturers  normally  filter  and  pasteurize  their  product  prior  to  bottling  to  prevent  the  eels  from  occurring.
 
 Vinegar  eels  are  often  given  to  fry  (baby  fish)  as  a  live  food,  like  microworms.  Vinegar  eels  are  only  found  in  unpasteurized  vinegar.  Vinegar  that  has  been  pasteurized  no  longer  has  the  live  bacterial  and  yeast  culture  that  these  nematodes  require  for  subsistence.[2]
 
 Enchytraeus  buchholzi
 --------------------------
 Enchytraeus  buchholzi  (also  known  as  white  worms  or  Grindal  worm)[1])  is  an  annelid  worm.  It's  cultured  by  aquarists  as  a  fish  food.[1]
 
 more  info
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grindal_worm
 
 Lumbriculus  variegatus
 --------------------------
 Lumbriculus  variegatus,  sometimes  known  as  blackworm  (or  even  California  blackworm),  is  the  name  given  to  at  least  three  distinct  species  of  worms  which  are  identical  in  outward  appearance.  Until  2009,  the  species  were  regarded  as  one.[1][2]
 
 These  species  of  worms  live  in  shallow  water  marshes,  ponds,  and  swamps,  feeding  on  microorganisms  and  organic  material.  They  live  throughout  North  America  and  Europe.

 Folks,
 
 I  have  got  Grindal  worm  culture  running  successfully!
 Thanks  to  Prem  KK,  he  got  the  starter  culture  from  singapore  around  one  month  back.  
 Iam  feeding  them  tetrabits  and  growing  them  on  sponge  and  scrothbrite.  They  seem  to  do  well  and  is  doubling  up  in  around  2-3  weeks  time.  Luckly  these  guys  dont  smell  like  microworms.
 
 Have  passed  on  to  4  members  yesterday.  I  have  Vyas,  Bala,  Balaji  and  Raghu  on  my  waiting  list.  Let  me  know  if  anyone  else  is  interested.
 
 Starter  culture  in  peat
 
 A  close  up  -  yummy!
 
 
 Grindals  in  sponge
 
 
 Grindals  in  scrotch  brite
 
 
 Regards
 Prasoon
